The most viral moment of the NCAA tournament's opening weekend came when No. 8 North Carolina State upset No. 1 Villanova 71-68 on March 21 in the round of 32.

It didn't take place in the game, though; it occurred when the camera panned to a piccolo player, who was playing through her tears.

On The Tonight Show Starring Jimmy Fallon Monday, Roxanne Chalifoux played with The Roots and talked about the moment and the resulting memes. She also nearly cried tears of joy when receiving Taylor Swift tickets.
